|Short Description||by Hannah Holmes. Science writer Holmes has traveled the world for her nature articles. However, for one year, she decided to stay put and concentrate on the nature world of her 2/10 acre, organic yard in South Portland, Maine. You may think a book on that subject would be pretty dull. It's not. It's funny, entertaining, and enlightening. And there is a lot going on, with more inhabitants than you would ever guess. There are myriad insects, above and below ground, birds, a cheeky chipmunk, squirrels, woodchucks, skunks and more. Holmes investigates her plant life as well, learning about fungi, the numerous useful herbs in her organic "freedom lawn", shrubs, flowers, trees, and all who feed on them. Once you've read this, you'll see your yard in a whole new light! Softcover 262pp. Pub at $14.95|
